I'd like to ask whether is it possible to create a smallest livecd
We need one within 5-10 Mb.
Only coreutils, bash, kernel and ssh-client, and some more due to packages
All our experiments lead to results ~100Mb image size.
By default, mkisofs is called with some predefined arguments in
args = ["/usr/bin/mkisofs",
Is there a reason why the -T option is not passed to mkisofs? From the
mkisofs man page:
-T Generate a file TRANS.TBL in each directory on the CDROM,
can be used on non-Rock Ridge capable systems to help
the correct file names. There is also information
the file that indicates the major and minor numbers for
and character devices, and each symlink has the name
link file given.
I encountered some systems where the use of this option was the only way
to make the LiveCD boot.
How can I add my custom wallpaper (and set it to default) in live CD?
gconftool-2 -t string -s /desktop/gnome/background/picture_filename myimg.png
but it did not work. Another question will also come: How can add that png file to live cd?
Similar question comes for Firefox: How can I set my default page there?

I'm trying to build a Centos livecd that will mostly call anaconda with
a kickstart file on an http server. I modified the
centos-livecd-minimal.ks file, first adding system-config-network-tui to
the %packages section to get networking, and the resulting ISO worked
fine. Next I added anaconda to the %packages section. But the
resulting ISO kernel panics saying "Unable to load SELinux Policy.
Machine is in enforcing mode." I don't really need selinux for my
purposes, so I changed the selinux setting in the ks file to
--permissive, but I still get the same panic. Any ideas as to why the
permissive setting isn't being picked up? Or what about adding anaconda
(which admittedly adds a bunch of other packages) made it stop loading
the policy file? Thanks.
A couple weeks ago I used the instructions at
https://projects.centos.org/trac/livecd/ to create a live CD of CentOS
5. I did this on a Centos 5.3 virtual machine running under VirtualBox
running on top of Ubuntu, at my office. I did the same thing at home on
my laptop. In both cases I was able to create the minimal livecd and
the full destkop livecd. Then I went on vacation for three weeks. When
I got back, I tried to create another livecd image, using the same
command, to just refresh my memory of what I'd been working on. Here's
the command I used:
LANG=C livecd-creator --config=centos-livecd-minimal.ks
But this time, I got the following error:
Error creating Live CD : syslinux not installed : no suitable *menu.c32
I tried it at home as well and got the same error. I've got syslinux
3.36-4.2 installed, including menu.c32 and vesamenu.c32. Any ideas as
to what would have changed that would cause livecd-creator to break, or
how to fix it? Thanks.
